Oman

Our full service real estate team of lawyers have a track record of advising on a diverse range of land acquisition and building maintenance projects including some of the largest and most complex development and infrastructure projects in the world, suites of construction contracts for use by our clients for works across their portfolio of developments, and bespoke contracts for specialised individual residential and refurbishment projects.

We advise regularly on a spectrum of all forms of contract, including the Omani-based standard form construction contracts. We also develop suites of bespoke documents for a number of our clients to match their procurement strategies.

Through decades of experience of doing deals across the world, our multi-jurisdictional teams draw from templates, processes and standards, including project management expertise. This means we can deploy specialist teams to advise you immediately, irrespective of where the real estate assets are. If you are launching or operating a real estate fund or setting up a real estate related joint venture, our funds and corporate experts can give you country-specific support. Our construction team works for governments and other public bodies, developers, contractors, sub-contractors, professionals, banks and financial institutions on a wide variety of different projects. This means we understand the issues from all perspectives and can identify solutions quickly. We can also introduce specialists from related areas such as construction insurance, environmental law, planning, public procurement, health and safety and PFI/PPP.
